SUPER CHIMNEY

 


Summary

The invention suggests employing a super tall chimney to facilitate heat exchange in the atmosphere as a remedy to Global Warming. Calculations show that if we can construct a chimney 5 kilometers (3 mile) tall and 20 meters in diameter out of flexible fabric material. Such Chimney will be sturdy enough to stand upright and withstand side winds. We will need as many 25,000 of such chimneys to stop global warming.

  • 25,000 chimneys will offset Global Warming.
  • Each chimney will produce electricity
  • Each chimney will induce rain generation in surrounding areas
  • Each chimney will transform desert into arable land capable of trapping . CO2

The goal of this website is to explain the idea of utilizing super-chimney technology as a unique way to avert global warming catastrophe at the same time as generating clean energy and irrigation. After looking through the information on this site you will understand how this technology works, and -- in fact -- how simple it is!

I suspect you might have questions, concerns, or criticism. In this regard, I urge you not to hesitate to contact me at mike@superchimney.org. I promise to do my best in replying to you in a timely fashion with more detailed explanations and discussion.

Sincerely,
